for about 100 years started with tr, fdr was intense on this. and barack obama has been even more intense; right? he announced for president and springfield before the old state house there. he takes the oath on the lincoln bible. i believe someone told me independently confirmed it he mentioned lincoln 230 sometime or something sin he was president. i think it's important to get lincoln right. if you get lincoln right, you get america right. you get what i believe should be our animating purpose as conservatives. by way of introduction they are common misconception of. we think of him as a man of the earth. the accidental president. the tribunal of the common people and common sense. i think it underestimates him. he wouldn't be surprised. it was a way he looked. the way he he said one in the white house he had the insight that god must love common looking people. he made more of them. he was common looking. but anyone who is judged him on the basis of his looks or thought any of those things i mentioned about him was making a grave mistake. this was a fear ambition man from the very you

to press the case for reform. 11:00 a.m., obama held a lengthy strategy session with the congressional black hispanic caucus. across town at 3:00 p.m., all 234 house republicans were scheduled to meet in a veritable immigration therapy session. but if you think it all points towards some hope for progress on the issue, you probably didn't see the headline on politico today. immigration reform heads for slow death. what's going on, you ask? here's the answer. republicans walked away from their 2012 debacle hellbent on fixing their problems with hispanics and now hellbent on making them worse. republicans on capitol hill predict comprehensive immigration reform will die a slow months' long death in the house. let's get right to it. joining us msnbc contributor steve schmitt and jim vandehei. executive editor at politico who reported that story. jim, isn't the rub of this the fact that we have hyperpartisanship and so few republicans in the house are representing hispanics in their districts. consequently there's no accountability when they go home? >> that's a huge part of. this house re
at the moscow airport. the white house said that moments ago, that president obama is going to call russian president vladimir putin and snoed an apparently appeared nervous, we're told, but is apparently in good health and during this meeting, it was behind closed doors, in the transit zone of moscow airport where he has been holed up for the past three weeks in this sort of purgatory of not being able to go one way or the other. so let's bring in fox's jennifer griff in for the latest on this. what more do we know about these meetings today with amnesty, international? >> this is fascinating. it's the first glimpse that we've had of edward snowden since he arrived at the moscow airport on june 23rd. he called in the representatives of am naesty international, human rights watch in moscow, and he made a statement, the meeting lasted about 45 minutes. it's a part of sheremetyevo airport that the russians had to give permission to the human rights groups to go in to the part of the transit lounge where snowden has been staying. it's clear that snowden would like to have temporary asylum in i
you very much. coming up next, president obama was quick to way weigh in on the trayvon martin death last year. why is the white house refusing now to comment on the situation? that report moments away. >> laura: back nau with life coverage of the george zimmerman murder trial. a case that is playing out all over the country, including the white house briefing room. >> is the president watching this trial and does he have any concerns as to what the response might be once it's come to its conclusion? >> i think that -- well, the president, as you know, does not spend a lot of time watching television during the day. but, you know, his comments on that are, you know, what they were, but, we're not going to say anything from here in the midst of a trial of that nature. >> laura: not going to say anything that wasn't the case last year when shortly after trayvon martin's death the president said this: >> can i only imagine what these parents are going through. and when i think about this boy, i think about my own kids. my main message is to to the parents of trayvon martin. you know, if
a propaganda platform. heavy criticism yesterday from the white house and the state department and president obama got on the phone to call president putin. russia has said they were neutral, they couldn't help him in this transit area. officials are telling me by allowing him to have this press conference, to meet with human rights activists, they're almost in effect treating him as if he almost has asylum already. so what the u.s. is really urging, they hope russia still has a chance to do the right thing, send him back to the united states, but president putin is in a bit of a box now because he is not -- he's in a lose/lose situation. on one hand domestically he needs to show he's the strong man not bowing to the united states and caving to the pressure. at the same time he wants to preserve his relationship with president obama. the two leaders are supposed to have a summit in september. officials tell me that's on hold while this whole matter is resolved. so right now there's a little bit of tension, not sure the u.s. is willing to destroy its entire relationship with russia, but they'
